STAMFORD, Conn., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PSSR) announced today that ten major North American airports have contracted for or completed the process of managing their entire field condition reporting process - including the integration with the FAA Flight Services eNOTAMs system - onto the PASSUR OPSnet collaborative platform. This major enhancement allows for more effective decisions in operational areas with significant financial and environmental impacts - such as push-backs, cancellations, deicing, diversions and fuel burn - through immediate, timely and automated dissemination of official NOTAMs and other critical information.
This network provides a common operating environment on the PASSUR OPSnet collaborative operations platform, which has thousands of daily users worldwide among airlines, airports, cargo operators, FBOs, FAA, TSA, ground handling suppliers and many other aviation organizations. All airports in the program are converting to the eNOTAM integration on PASSUR OPSnet.
The airports involved in this program are (in order of their deployment of the integration with eNOTAMs): Milwaukee General Mitchell International (MKE), Westchester County (HPN), Denver International (DEN), Boston Logan International (BOS), Oakland International (OAK), Washington Dulles International (IAD), John F. Kennedy International (JFK), Newark Liberty International (EWR), LaGuardia (LGA), and Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA).
"The airport stakeholders really appreciate the way MKE uses the system to disseminate up-to-date airport operational information; there's no doubt in my mind that we have helped airlines significantly, both in reducing delays and preventing diversions," said Terry Blue, Deputy Airport Director, Milwaukee General Mitchell International Airport.
"Denver takes great pride in being at the forefront of sweeping changes in the way airports manage real-time communication, coordination and collaboration for the benefit of our customers," said John Kinney, Deputy Manager of Aviation for Airport Operations and Public Safety, Denver International Airport. "Our partnership with PASSUR has been an important part of our ability to maintain a leadership role in this effort."
"At Dulles International airport, we consider communication and collaboration to be critical to the safe and efficient management of our airfield," said Dana Pitts, Manager of Airport Operations at Washington Dulles International Airport. "The latest release of PASSUR OPSnet has created significant gains in some of the most critical metrics by which we measure success."
"In this competitive environment, Oakland is focused on ensuring that its carriers get access to the safest, most cost-effective, efficient operation possible," said Deborah Ale Flint, Acting Director of Aviation for the Port of Oakland, which owns and operates Oakland International Airport. "Our participation in the PASSUR OPSnet program is an integral part of our business model."
